A Place to Bury Strangers on the cover of The Deli's NYC / NAMM Issue 2018!

Hello good music diggers!

The Winter 2018 issue of The Deli NYC (our 53rd!) is now available for you to read online, here!

This is also the first NAMM issue of The Deli, since a week from today we'll be at the Californian musical instrument convention with a huge booth full of guitar pedals!

That's why we took the opportunity to put on the cover of our magazine the legendary Brooklyn noise rockers A Place To Bury Strangers - a band that makes their own stompboxes, called Death By Audio.

The issue features a lot of other local artists (and their pedals) and also an article about the best records of 2017 by emerging NYC Artists - check it out!

Here's a playlist of the artists featured in the issue.

P.S. 10k free copies of this issue hit the street of Austin during SXSW Music week!

   

Garage rockers The Maxims release peculiar video for “Endless Mind”

Three piece garage rock outfit The Maxims made their debut last summer with the release of their eponymous EP, a collection of five songs that showcase their reverence to the retro sound of classic garage rock and soul. Steeped in the sounds of gritty guitars and swirling organs, The Maxims is as brash as it is sly, drifting between foot-stomping blues numbers to cool-headed 60s swagger. Last week, The Maxims released a grainy, peculiar music video for the EP’s first song, “Endless Mind”, which you can watch below. -Charley Ruddell

   

Following a debut release, Joanna Teters to play Middle East Upstairs

There was a point in time when singer Joanna Teters, the now-New Yorker, was a resident of the Jamaica Plain neighborhood in Boston. While studying at Berklee College of Music, Teters became a familiar and friendly face in the Boston music scene as the smokey, soulful singer for several groups including Lowtone Society and Ila Mawana. Now, with the release of her excellent solo debut Warmer When It Rains, Teters has shared Winter tour dates throughout the East Coast, which includes The Middle East Upstairs on February 1st.

Warmer When It Rains is a collection of masterfully produced pop/neo-soul songs influenced by 90s pop/RnB, island and reggae music, and jilted hip-hop beats, lead exclusively by Teters’ smoothly crafted melodies. Rains is an exercise in writing about love within pop songs, an artform in itself that produces either everlasting, or fatefully unforgettable music; fortunately for us, Teters has delivered a lasting and engaging debut, both musically and emotionally. Stream her new album below, and be sure to check the Warmer When It Rains Tour schedule to see Joanna in a city near you. -Charley Ruddell

 

   

Big Boy Club surprise all with new album “Untitled”

Allston, MA is known best for two things: the rats, and its thriving underground music scene. Circulating somewhere within the latter is Big Boy Club, a three piece punk/emo outfit comprised of singer/guitarist Joe Sutkowski, bassist Billy Cunningham, and drummer Mikel Costa. Big Boy Club surprised fans on January 11th by releasing a new album called Untitled, an announcement that was their newest facebook post since July of last year. Untitled is a musically ambitious exploration into the “Allston sound”, a DIY punk/emo hybrid recognizable in Boston bands like Animal Flag and Horse Jumper of Love. Stream Untitled below. -Charley Ruddell
